Huge thanks go to Matt Smith for these wonderful sources and his masterful transfer and patch work!!!
The aud reel is courtesy of Don Wolfe and the second board reel is from Pat Lee. Huge thanks guys!!!
* as Matt puts it, "the first part of Dark Star is MR>D>CD, then it goes into the AUD which is MAR>?>R@3 @ ips., and then into the MR>A77>A77@ 71/2 ips>CD. The term A77 in the lineage denotes a Revox A77 reel to reel deck. There is also a patch in Lovelight at the end with the AUD. This is a perfect example how a reel transfer despite its lineage can blow away a MR>D>CD source. The reel version is so much richer than the circulating version."
